Wicks for Kerosene Heaters Unique to Australia -
Wicks Shipped Every Day, delivery time can be as little as one week.*

Tens of thousands of heaters have been sold during the past 60 years which were given names and model numbers only used in Australia, but the same heaters were often sold under different names and model numbers in other parts of the world.  Quality replacement wicks are readily available - my wicks are made in England by Hattersley. 

The list below does not include heaters sold in Australia and New Zealand which are listed on other pages of this web site, such as those sold as Aladdin, Corona and Toyoset brands.  A listing of all heaters by name brand is on the left side on this page.   For a listing of  heaters sold with European brand name and model numbers, click here.       Postage cost from USA to Australia, click here.

Wicks using standard Australian "R" numbers >>

R3 85mm


There were kerosene heaters sold in Australia which had brand names which only survived a year or two.  They used common wick diameters and lengths as established by Japanese heater manufacturers in the early 1980's, no pins, and the wicks would universally fit many heaters.  The wicks themselves could be marked with the wick diameter, as in XXX-95-3-R indicating a 95mm wick.  These wicks are straight, fiberglass top section with a cotton bottom section joined with a cloth band, and no pins! 

Later additions were pinned wicks #R3A and R9A, and two-piece wick #R11.

My wicks are made in England by Hattersley to exacting specifications.

* I mail all orders every day.  Some packages are delivered in 7 days, some take longer, depending on how long they are held in Aussie Customs.  Generally, there is no requirement to pay duty and Goods and Services Tax (GST) on imported goods valued at or below A$1,000.  

Postage to OZ for wicks:

Postage costs to Australia from Oregon, USA are by the amount of purchase.  Postage costs increased substantially in May, 2020.  Amounts listed are in US dollars. The ''weight segments'' of postage fees also changed dramatically.  For example, 1 to 8 ounces are the same cost - $16.95.  Nine ounces to 2 pounds are the same rate - $26.95. Two R4, R5 and R6 wicks weigh less than 9 ounces, for example, so two of those wicks can be shipped for the same $16.95 cost.  A Perfection 500/Valor 525 wick costs $11.95 and weighs 7 ounces, so two of those wicks combined in the same package cost $26.95 to mail 1st Class to Australia.. and up to 5 Perfection/Valor 500/525 wicks still weigh less than 2 lbs and can go for the same $26.95. 

Some lighter wicks do cost more than heavier, less expensive wicks, and in those cases I refund the excess paid as all I want to do is break even on postage paid and my postage cost.  I have absolutely no influence over the International Postal Rate Commission so it is not my fault that postage rates are so high.

Postage to OZ for wicks (Chimneys can be more because of bulk and sturdy packaging).  This is now the actual cost of postage from the USA to OZ!!!!!

1st Class Postage costs From (USD) To (USD) Rate (USD)

$0.01 to $22.00 is $16.95 = ( .5 oz to 8 oz). This can be one or two wicks.  Two wicks #7X, for example, just fit under the 9 ounce limit.

$22.01 to $46.00 is $26.95 = (9 oz to 2 lbs). This can be up to six wicks.  Depends upon the wick. The Perfection 500 wick weighs more than 6 oz, two are 12 oz and just 2 of those wicks cost $26.95...but up to 5 Perfection 500 wicks go for $26.95. It is insane but I did not make the rules.

$46.01 to $69.00 is $45.95 = (2 lbs to 3 lbs). Flat wicks can weigh up to 5 oz each, 48 oz / 5 = 9 wicks.

$69.01 to $99.00 is $64.95 = 3 to 4 lbs.

$99.01 and up = Over 4 lbs.

NOTE:  There are some combinations of wick purchases which can cause the rate charged at checkout to be more than the actual cost of shipping.  In that case I always refund the excess paid.

Weigh per wick:

R3, R3A, R4,R6, R9, R9A = 3 oz each.

R5 = 4 oz each.

R11, R12 = 12 oz each.

R28 and 120mm wide wicks = 6 oz each.





Just letting you know what a success the new wick is. Installed it today and it is running like a charm.

 Wow, how much difference a new wick makes to the clean operation of a kero heater. So for anyone out there from Australia who is experiencing the same as I had, smelly and lack lustre operation, this will fix it…..  Thanking you heaps…..  James Tom
